O.P.E.N. Tri-Cities (Open relationships, Polyamory and Ethical Non-monogamy) is an all-inclusive social group for people in or curious about ethical non-monogamous relationships. Everyone is welcome regardless of gender, sexual preference, race, religion, economic factors, or body ability. "Open" is defined as many ways as there are Open people.
We define Open as any practice that involves -- or a curiosity in -- consensual non-monogamous relationships.
Polyamory means "many loves." It is a word that describes the practice of engaging in multiple intimate relationships simultaneously, with the consent of everyone involved. There are many ways of practicing polyamory, and no one way is the “right” way, but polyamorists tend to agree that their relationships are based upon the tenets of open communication, honesty, and respect for themselves and their partners.
PLEASE, NOTE THAT THIS IS NOT A HOOK-UP GROUP NOR A PLACE FOR PERSONAL ADS.
